“Excellent”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We liked this hotel a lot, the people on the front desk where very nice and helpful regarding all the topics about Yosemite Valley. Mariposa is a nice town to stay, not much to do, but a very comfortable place. The breakfast at this hotel was awesome, everything was fresh and delicious. The rooms are very nice and comfortable along with the bathroom inside the room.

This is a clean, attractive motel at the south or western end of Mariposa. It is a short walk up a one block hill to the historic downtown area. The motel was freshly landscaped with flowering annuals when we visited at the end of April and looked very nice on the outside. There was a typical motel room on the inside. It was clean and neat. A typical motel breakfast was included in the very reasonable price that we paid -- it is still off season. It is about a one and a half hour drive to Yosemite Valley over a scenic road. At the end of April in a relatively dry year the main waterfalls were still flowing well. Fill up you gas tank in Mariposa as gas costs over $5/gallon in Yosemite.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor are on the ground in the front, but rooms on the second floor are on the gr...

This hotel is more than a place to stay on a trip, it's like visiting family! Everyone there from management to housekeeping makes you feel like your home from a long trip!! When we come to Mariposa, we are visiting our grandkids, and they tend to be a little unruly. It is so nice to come to this hotel, they treat us and our family just like family!! We would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone and everyone going to this area!!

We could not make it to the hotel due to unexpected/last minute closed roads. I called the reservation line and the hotel and the staff would not accommodate a cancellation. We had to pay for a room we couldn't even stay in. They said the room would have to be cancelled 2 or more days in advance...who knows roads are going to be closed that far in advance. Most hotels are cancel by 4-6pm on the day of arrival, we called at noon!

Staff was very friendly, very informative for places to dine out, and for touring the Yosemite. Hotel is in a great location. Breakfast was great, plenty of seating. Rooms were very clean, beds were comfy.

décor, cleanliness, and attentiveness of staff all excellent for a 2-night stay near Yosemite. Worth the 45 minute drive in. Recommend highly. 45 minutes from Southern and Central entrances to Yosemite. Town of Mariposa is definitely more interesting than El Portal also.

Wonderful. We were skeptical at first as some Best Westerns haven't been great . . . but this WAS. We'd stay there again and certainly recommend it to others, AND we're very particular about cleanliness and noise!
